The joys of maintaining a website

By | December 10, 2018

A few teething problems over the weekend with the site showing dire warnings from Google, but hopefully its settled down now.

Although I don’t collect any personal or financial information on the site, that all takes place in the checkout which is part of Paypal’s website, I thought it best to implement a secure server so customers would feel comfortable when visiting the site as they would see the secure padlock icon next to the address bar.

Unfortunately, as the internet is a loose collaboration of individuals and companies independently maintaining computers around the world, whenever you do something like this you have to wait until all of the computers that keep the internet going have finished talking to each other and updating files before it all works as it should.

I think there are still some far corners of the globe where traditionalfishingfloats.co.uk isn’t accessible, but for the U.K., mainland Europe and the U.S.A. I think its now working properly.

Up and Running Again

Float selectionAfter a summer spent travelling, a house move and a change of web host, I’m finally back into float production.

The web site contains a mix of my previous designs and some new ones, with more to be added over the coming days and weeks. I’m currently re-stocking materials for the float making kits and these should also be available soon.

While waiting for the web site to be ready I’ve made several sets of floats and these are available now in my ebay shop:
